But they would need to finish their own season. It's unlikely to be much use going to court complaining that "under the rules, the league leaders after 46 games should have got promotion and the Premier league won't let them in", because the court could very well say "you haven't got to 46 games".Spijed wrote: ↑Tue Mar 31, 2020 3:50 pmAs such, the EFL's position won't be changing, and that effectively locks the Premier League in. It is there where the real potential for legal challenges arise. Multiple sources say that promotion-chasing clubs would have a legitimate argument that they will have suffered extraordinary loss if the Premier League does attempt to void the season and just restart from summer 2019. The expectation is they would be “very aggressive”.
Leeds quite clearly have not earned promotion. Sueing so the court will give them something they haven't earned? Good luck with that one. If the FL want to complain that they have kept their side of the bargain and expect the PL to keep theirs, fair enough - but to say that neither side could keep their side of the bargain so they want the court to intercede as if both sides had done so? Long shot.
